If your eyes were half as bright, they still would light my way, If your heart were twice as true then you'd be mine today. That's why I often wish that you were half as lovely, twice as true, I'm only one of those who thinks of you and sighs,
Just another who knows your laughter and lies. I wish that you were someone who was half as lovely, twice as true. I love you, I love you, too much it seems, for any fool can see, With your heart so crowded with other dreams, how can you dream of me? Though I pray the gods of love will make you care, somehow, Still I know the odds of love are all against me now, But I might stand a chance if you were half as lovely, twice as true. Maybe, if your loveliness were not so heavenly, Maybe then I might possess the only one for me, I wish that you were someone who was half as lovely, twice as true.
